Question: Hey Matt. I love this question-and-answer forum the Bee has, and I am going to take advantage of it now. Do you think you guys could add on a "Where Are They Now?" section. Maybe upon request or you pick the player of the week. We love our Niners and sometimes we wonder "Where Are They Now?" I'll give you a name of a player who helped coach me when he first came to the Bay Area: Bill Ring, who played in the 80's for the NIners and Super Bowl XVI. Thanks Matt.

Answer: Gee, I hate to plug one of my competitors, but the Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Matt Maiocco recently wrote a book called "49ers: Where Have You Gone?" According to the book, Bill Ring is a big-wig senior VP at a financial company in San Francisco. (Hey Matt, I want a percentage if book sales suddenly skyrocket.)
